Description:

Experience the running and Nordic Walking Arena Tannheimer Tal


Whether you are a breathless beginner or a well-trained mountaineer: in the Tannheimer Tal everyone who likes to get some fresh air and explore the surrounding mountains on foot gets his money's worth. All active people, from hobby sportsmen to professionals, are spoilt for choice day after day: Tyrol's largest path network offers 26 marked routes which extend over a total of 186 kilometres. Beginner's loops are just as much a part of it as demanding mountain runs. And so that all guests know which route suits their physical condition and requirements, a specially prepared map and small boards provide information about the altitude profile, reason for difficulty and length of the route - the running and Nordic walking map.


Along meadows, over green pastures, along glittering mountain lakes... Walking and running in the Tannheimer Tal is not only the best training for the body, but above all a balm for the soul. The starting points for all those hungry for exercise are in the six villages Tannheim, Grän- Haldensee, Nesselwängle-Haller, Zöblen, Schattwald and Jungholz. From here, walkers, Nordic walkers and runners follow the signs. They are easy to recognize: Male with the sticks. In addition, all routes, as well as ski slopes, are divided into the categories black, red and blue. An optimal marking, which among other things has contributed to the fact that since 2005 the probably most beautiful high valley in Europe can officially call itself "Running and Walking Competence Tower".



Directions:

Take the cable car to the Neunerköpfle mountain station. From there in a southerly direction on an easy mountain path to the Obere Strindenalpe. Continue on a track over the Strindenscharte to the Gappenfeld Alpe.

Tip:
A stop in one of the huts on the way, hearty snacks are waiting for you.

Safety guidelines:
It should be noted that running and walking may involve a risk of accident and injury. Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. 

Equipment:
The personal equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the relevant technical standards. Everyone is recommended to inform themselves about the planned tours in technical literature or on site. Complete equipment is strongly recommended, even for experienced riders!
